Former assistant Robertson named 2019 Head Coach.
Omaha, NE (April 19, 2019) - Bugeaters FC announced that Scott Robertson will be the Head Coach in the 2019 season. Robertson was an assistant in 2018 and was the obvious choice to lead the Bugeaters forward in its campaign.
The Burnley, England native was an assistant on the 2016 undefeated National Championship winning team at Hastings College and since 2017, an Associate Head Coach at Nebraska Christian College.
“Scott was the logical choice to lead us forward,” Bugeaters Chairman Jonathan Collura said. “He is aligned with the mission of the club and building a top side with Nebraska talent. I’m excited about his opportunity to further develop his career with us.”
Joining Robertson will be assistants Jan Chvojan and Aaron Onion. Chvojan is an assistant at Concordia University in Seward. Onion played at Nebraska Wesleyan and was on the team last season.
“The team is shaping up well and I’m excited to be leading them,” Robertson said. “Bugeaters is becoming a top program and I am confident that I can take it to the next level both on and off the pitch with the lads involved. We are going to have a good season.”
The club will finalize its roster by its opening match on the 28th when it heads to Little Rock. It is expected to showcase all Nebraska connections.
“The club has focused on Nebraskans. We think that fans will be excited to see that again when we announce the roster,” Robertson continued.
The Bugeaters home season opens on May 25th when they host Sioux Falls Thunder at Morrison Stadium in Omaha.
Admission this season will be $10 adults and $5 youth. Tickets will be available at the gate.
